As head coach:
Arik Shivek (Hebrew: אריק שיבק) is an Israeli professional basketball head coach for Bnei Herzliya of the Israeli Premier League. Shivek is the former head coach of the senior Israeli national basketball team, serving from 2009 to 2014, succeeding Zvi Sherf.
Shivek started coaching in 1983, with Maccabi Netanya, and later moved to clubs such as Maccabi Ra’anana, Maccabi Ramat Gan, and Hapoel Tel Aviv. Beginning in 2003, he coached the Amsterdam Ricoh Astronauts in the Netherlands, leading it to championships in 2008 and 2009, and the Antwerp Giants in Belgium.
In December 2009, he was appointed the head basketball coach of the senior Israeli national basketball team. The Israel Basketball Association permitted him to take the job on a part-time basis. In June 2011, he re-signed as coach of Dexia Mons-Hainaut for a third straight year, subsequent to declining job offers from teams in France and Germany.
In the 2015–16 season, Shivek coached Israeli club Maccabi Rishon LeZion. He coached the team to its first Israeli championship, after beating powerhouses Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem, on the way to the league title. On February 27, 2017, Shivek was fired.
